Truth be told, the video game I am playing most is the "Spongebob Squarepants Movie" game for PS2. My son has some trouble with some of the puzzles and the time trials so I get called in as ready reserve. We make quite a sight.

OK.. so I changed out my Xbox game... its now the SW BattleFront. We were playing earlier. lol Though my box did get used for a HALO party this weekend.... I don't think it'll ever be the same again. lol

In my computer is a new game called Pirates. Its a revamped game from a long time ago. Its looking pretty sweet so far.

In my gameboy advanced....I have Texas Hold 'em. Gotta work on my poker skills.

I used to play that...I could never get past a certain point and finally gave up. I should see if that will work on my puny system at home and see if I've gotten any smarter. I should look for something like Resident Evil, too, that was a good game. Hmmm, we have Vampire the Masquerade; I'll have to see if that will work.

Myself, I'm X-box-less and only have a handful of games that will run on my poor 733 system at home. I play Half-Life, MechWarrior 3 (but it sometimes crashes), and Diablo II Explansion whenever I get the chance but I need to find the install disks to fix a problem on it...sigh...there's always something.

I look forward to the day when I have disposable income and can get an X-box and buy Halo and Halo 2 and play it or another game online with my big brother.

Thumbs up Red 5 standing by.

I've started playing the old classic X-Wing Alliance over the last few days. I'm not very good at this game, and I'm still on the "Family" missions at the moment. My wee brother was great at this game, and I used to 'help' him(basicly I sat and watched!). But since he has moved away, I have to try myself. And I never get far before giving up!

Still, it's a brilliant game.

Hi,

Woo Hoo! Congratulations!



I'm about halfway through Halo 2, although I haven't been playing it as often as I'd like. I'm still on the easy level. After completing the game, I'll play it at the harder levels.

Regards,

Nathan

Halo is, design wise, a fairly run of the mill first person shooter game for console and PC, with art design equal to any game you've ever seen. It's a straight shooter game, but the environments, the weapons and environmental design are unbelievable. The sequel, Halo2, has been out since about November is leading to divorces and failing grades all over North America.

god I believe it because that is how a game affects me I never stop playing until I get it out of my system. Which usually takes months 10 to 16 hours straight with just enough time for bathroom breaks, I even forget to eat

While you all are playing with yourselves, I prefer on-line stuff.

Star Wars Galaxies <-- live, work and die in the Star Wars universe

Everquest II <-- Had to try it, didnt like it, gonna sell it, Lord of the Rings type world

Jumpgate <-- Best space flight sim ever made

Aces High <-- WWII fighter combat, you against ppl all over the world

Jumpgate is about the closest you can get to flying in space. It is fluid space, so there is a tad of gavity. You can be a miner, or commerice boat captain to make money. Lots of different mission. The enemy are called conflux. Space marine life. The nastest foe Ive had in ANY sim Ive done.

With the steam of new on-liners out there. JG has only about 100-200 regular players, so you do get a lot of one on one from good folk. On the other hand the conflux run rabid, and you have to run for your life a lot.

The learning curve is real high, but then so are most of the newer on-liners. BTW thye do use both energy and projectile weapons. either way the flight dynamics will take you a few weeks to get the hang of. The combat dyamics will take you a lot longer.

Its a free download and you can zip about off-line. try it, if you like it, then you can go on-line and run for your life.

Oh yeah there are grievers. Players that have nothing better to do than to hunt down noobs and blow them a part. It is a full PVP sim.

My problem with the persistent online gaming stuff is that it seems like a career. It seems like you have to spend a lot of time to get to a point in the game where it's fun. I have enough work as it is. Also, call me cheap, but I like to finish paying to play a game at the checkout counter of the store.

Hi,

Halo was also one of the first Xbox shooter games to feature vehicles. That really did make the game stand out. My favorite is the Warthog, a futuristic four wheeler vehicle. You can spend hours and hours exploring terrain in that game. And there's the Banshee to fly around in, and of course the Scorpion tank that will blow anything up!



Regards,

Nathan
